Summer Policies for Single Graduates

Summer Matching in Graduate Housing

"Summer matching” may cause a student to be assigned to a residence not listed on his or her application, including an off-campus residence. This occurs when a student applies for both summer and autumn housing. Housing Assignments will automatically assign a student to the same residence for Summer Quarter as they are assigned to for Autumn Quarter, pending availability.

Waiver of Cancellation Fees for Single Graduate Students Assigned for Summer But Not for 2017-18

Students who apply for summer housing and for 2017-18 housing may cancel their summer housing without a fee if assigned for summer but not for 2017-18. Students in this situation should cancel the summer contract through Axess and then submit a HelpSU to Student Housing referencing this policy.  Upon confirmation of eligibility for the waiver, the cancellation fee will be reversed.

Co-Terminal Students

Co-terminal students can only apply for undergraduate student housing in Axess. Co-terminal students over the age of 24 can petition in Axess for a waiver of this policy.


Reassignments are not offered for graduate students during the Summer Quarter unless medically necessary. Students should contact the Office of Accessible Education should the need arise.

Gender-Neutral Assignments

Only students who are assigned to gender-neutral housing for Autumn and are assigned to the same residence for the summer will be considered for gender-neutral housing for Summer. Please submit a Gender-Neutral Housing Petition in Axess if this applies.

Transgender Students

Transgender students may contact Justin Akers, the Summer Housing Assignment Manager, for a confidential assignment.
